    to create ur partition without formatting follow this stapes:
    • go to start
    • search "cmd"
    • when cmd open just type "diskmgmt.msc" To open Disk Management.
    • now u can do what u want.
    or if u want to partition u can download a windows version & fully format ur hard drive & create partition from beginning with installing new windows...but if u format don't forgot to backup ur first windows & data...i will need latter

    Hello,
    Merging 2 drives in one is possible by 2 ways
    1.Right click on the computer icon and click manage
    2.Then open storage
    You will get this kind of screen
    Disk management.jpg
    Then u can right click on the drive which to want to merge and select shrink volume.

    The other way is doing it with the help of the OS disk. But in that case you data would be formatted.

    Friend, if you want new partition you can go to Device Manager and select Disk Management or Disk Fragmentation. As you want to go for Disk Partition you can go for Disk Management. In this you can merge or partition the present Disk.

    You can merge or Shrink Volume. You can shrink to the value which you want. You can do this with Command Prompt. But this would be some when lengthy.
